Darkness of the mind, just an inkblot of poison fills the jar.
Undo the blinds, can you still see the faint sunshine that filters through.
Light and dark, unmatched playmates in shadowy playgrounds.
Run your hand along this length of rope or the metallic cool of a gun.
Will it be tonight, that the fingers will curl into the familiar hollow and pick up.
Will it be tonight, that the phone will be switched off and eyes shut tight.
Will it be tonight, that there will be a note left behind.
Please don’t let it be tonight, or any other night.
I’m here praying that you’ll live through these terrifying times.
Please hold on.
Don’t let your starlight eyes lose their glimmer in the dark.
